Australian Premiere | Exclusive to Adelaide

A masterwork of contemporary Chinese theatre, this hilarious yet poignant production tells the story of  two drama troupes who find themselves mistakenly booked into the same theatre space. One group is rehearsing Secret Love, a romantic memory play about a couple separated by the Chinese Revolution, while the other company is preparing a farcical period comedy, Peach Blossom Land.

Despite initial disdain for each others' productions, the cast of these two wildly different plays slowly, almost magically, merge as the performers complete each other's lines and intertwined themes emerge. By the end, the audience is left to contemplate the burdens of memory, history, longing, love and the power of theatre itself.

Regarded as one of China's 'top 10 plays of the century', this masterwork of contemporary Chinese theatre comes from the legendary writer and director Stan Lai making his Australian debut with this universally acclaimed production as Secret Love In Peach Blossom Land is a modern classic that holds a special place in hearts around the world.

Lai's most famous work Secret Love in Peach Blossom Land may be the most popular contemporary play in China. The New York Times
